    Thumbs down Marlins 5, Nationals 4

    The Marlins complete the sweep of the Nationals in Washington with a 5-4 Sunday afternoon victory.

    A 7 inning, 5 hit, 2 run effort by Shawn Hill is wasted as Luis Ayala gives up 3 runs in the top of the 8th for the loss.

    Scott Olsen started for the Marlins pitching 6 innings and giving up 4 runs. Logan Kensing gets the win, his record now 2-0 and Kevin Gregg gets his 7th save.

    Offense for the Nationals comes from a Jesus Flores double, Aaron Boone who tripled and homered and a Ronnie Belliard homer.

    However, that was overcome by 3 Marlins homers, 2 from Dan Uggla and the ultimate game winner from Jeremy Hermida off Luis Ayala in the top of the 8th inning.

    Nationals record: 15-23

    Current streak: 3 losses

    Next game: Monday, May 12th in New York vs. the Mets at 7:10PM EDT (if the monsoon now hitting the east coast lets up)

    Thumbs up Nationals 1, Mets 0

    The Mets Mike Pelfry and the Nationals Jason Bergmann, just back from AAA Columbus, engage in a pitcher's duel, with Bergmann the eventual winner.

    Pelfry tossed a no-hitter through 6 innings before it was broken up by an Aaron Boone single in the seventh.

    The games' only run was scored by the Nats in the top of the eighth when Jesus Flores doubled and was advanced by a Willie Harris bunt and a Felipe Lopez sacrifice fly. Flores' double was the only extra base hit of the game.

    A spectacular diving catch by Willie Harris in the bottom of the ninth with a runner on base helped preserve the win for Bergmann. Aaron Boone made some good plays at first. Boone was filling in for Nick Johnson, who is once again headed to the disabled list.

    Jon Rauch earns his ninth save of the season.

    Nationals record: 18-24

    Current streak: 2 wins

    Next game: The "Battle of the Beltways" resumes Friday, as the Nationals head to Baltimore to take on the Orioles in a 3 game set at OPACY (Orioles Park At Camden Yards), first game Friday, May 17th @ 7:05PM EDT.

    Congrats on the franchise's 3,000 lifetime victory. Why does Tim Redding pitch so great against my Phillies? This is the second shutout he has thrown against them this season. I think Redding beat the Phils a few times last year as well. Redding is a Phillie killer.

    Ryan Zimmerman is going to be an elite player before long. I don't care if he has been in an early season slump, I would trade anyone on the Phils, except for Utley, for Zimmerman. I'd even trade Ryan Howard straight up for Zimmerman. Howard would provide a cool breeze at the Nats new park with the number of times he strikes out.

    Thumbs up Washington 4, Philadelphia 0

    Washington's Tim Redding pitches 6.1 innings, giving up 7 hits and 2 walks, but gets the outs when he needs them, raising his record to 6-3 with a 4-0 win over the Phillies.

    Philadelphia starter Brett Myers gives up 3 of Washington's 4 runs and is charged with the loss, dropping his record to 2-5.

    The Phillies Geoff Jenkins stroked 2 doubles in the game, and the Phils left 9 men on base. The only 1-2-3 inning Redding managed was the top of the 5th.

    Offensively for the Nationals Felipe Lopez, Christian Guzman, Ryan Zimmerman, Jesus Flores and Lastings Milledge all doubled, Milledge twice, finally showing signs of breaking out of an early season slump.

    Nationals record: 20-26

    Current streak: 2 wins

    Next game: Tuesday, May 20 vs. Philadelphia in DC @ 7:10 PM EDT.

    It's also great to see Zimmerman come around. He's hitting .275 in his last 10games, and .438 in his last 4. Another good thing is that he doesn't have a single K in those last 4 games.

    Thumbs down Phillies 1, Nationals 0

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels and Washington starter Jason Bergmann both pitch 7 innings of scoreless baseball but neither figures in the decision.

    For the Phillies, Tom Gordon secures the win, raising his record to 4-2 and Brad Lidge gets credit for the save.

    The Nationals Saul Rivera holds the Phillies scoreless in the top of the 8th, but Jon Rauch sees his scoreless inning streak end at 12 and is tagged with the loss, his record now 2-1.

    Both teams left 10 runners on base, the Nats leaving 2 men on in the 7th, 8th & 9th innings. The Nationals also managed to strikeout 13 times.

    The only run of the game came from a Shane Victorino double and a Greg Dobbs single for the games' only RBI.

    Also stroking 2 baggers for the Phillies were Chase Utley and Pedro Feliz.

    Nationals record: 20-27

    Current streak: 1 loss

    Thumbs down Phillies 12, Nationals 2

    The Phillies bats, being uncharacteristically quiet the first 2 games of this series, unload on Washington pitching for 12 runs in the final game of the 3 game set.

    Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer gives up 7 hits, but no runs, for his 4th win while reliever Clay Condrey gives up 5 hits and 2 runs but collects his 1st save of the season.

    On the Washington side things weren't so pretty: Matt Chico gives up 4 runs in 5 innings, dropping his record to 0-6. Jesus Colome proves ineffective, giving up 1 walk, 5 hits and 6 runs in 1/3 of an inning. Chris Schroder also surrenders 2 runs. Joel Hanrahan finishes up the final 2.2 innings without allowing any more damage.

    The Phillies get doubles from Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. Victorino also homered as did Howard (twice) and Pedro Feliz.

    The Nats only manage 2 doubles from Felipe Lopez and Jesus Flores while leaving 9 men on base.

    Speaking of ineffective-the hitting, or should we say lack of hitting, by the Nats leaves 2 men on base in the 2nd and 4th, and a man on second in the 3rd, all of these opportunities with NO outs, and don't manage to capitalize once.

    After a night off, the Nationals will be in action against the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4 game Memorial Day weekend homestand.

    Nationals record: 20-28

    Current streak: 2 losses

    Next game: Friday, May 23rd vs. Milwaukee in DC @ 7:35 PM EDT.

    Thumbs up Washington 5, Milwaukee 1

    The Nationals score 4 unearned runs in the bottom of the 6th inning after an error by Milwaukee shortstop J. J. Hardy and come away 5-1 winners in the first of a 4 game Memorial Day weekend series in Washington.

    Washington pitcher Brian Sanches, just up from AAA Columbus, collects his first win of the season, while Brewers starter Jeff Suppan sees his record drop to 2-4.

    The Brewers use 3 pitchers, the Nationals 5. Washington starter Odalis Perez pitches 5 innings, giving up 5 hits and 1 run but does not figure in the decision.

    The Nationals 5 runs come on only 3 hits, all extra base knocks, with doubles by Ryan Zimmerman and Jesus Flores and a home run by Wily Mo Pena, his first of the season, accounting for 4 of the Nats 5 runs.

    Milwaukee gets doubles from Jason Kendall and Rickie Weeks. However the Brewers only run comes from an RBI single by loser Jeff Suppan.

    Thumbs up Nationals 7, Brewers 6

    Sometimes you just have to take what you can get...

    The Nationals, up 6-0, surrender 6 runs to the Brewers in the top of the 6th. The score would remain tied until the bottom of the 9th when a Guillermo Mota wild pitch allows Elijah Dukes to score from 3rd with the winning run.

    The Brewers outhit the Nats 12-8 with 2 Nationals runs coming courtesy of wild pitches from Brewers starter Manny Parra and the game winner from Mota.

    The Brewers use 4 pitchers in the contest, starter Parra only lasts 4.1 innings, giving up 6 runs to the Nationals. Mota is charged with the loss, his record dropping to 1-3.

    Nationals starter Tim Redding pitches 5.2 innings, giving up 10 hits and 5 runs. Saul Rivera is charged with the other Milwaukee run. Jon Rauch gets the win in relief, his record now 3-1.

    Offense for the Brewers comes from doubles by Mike Cameron and Russell Branyan (who goes 2-3 in his first game after being brought up from AAA Nashville) and a Corey Hart home run.

    The Nationals counter with doubles from Christian Guzman, Lastings Milledge and Wily Mo Pena and Aaron Boone's 4th home run of the season.

    Nationals record: 22-29

    Current streak: 1 win

    Next game: Monday, May 26 vs Brewers in DC @ 1:35 PM EDT.

    Thumbs down Brewers 4, Nationals 3 (11 innings)

    The Nationals Jason Bergmann pitches 5.2 scoreless innings but it's all for naught as the Brewers manage to come back and win it in the 11th.

    The Nationals use 6 pitchers in the extra inning matchup, the Brewers 5.

    Milwaukee's 4th pitcher of the game, Carlos Villanueva raises his record to 3-5 with Salomon Torres getting his second save in 3 days.

    Offense for the Nationals comes from solo homers from Christian Guzman and Dmitri Young, with doubles added by Lastings Milledge, Elijah Dukes and Jesus Flores. Unfortunately there weren't enough men on base to make many of these hits meaningful, Washington stranding only 5 runners.

    On the Milwaukee side, Mike Cameron, Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun all double. Milwaukee managed 9 hits and stranded 9 runners.

    Saul Rivera is charged with the loss, his record now 3-2.

    Nationals record: 22-30

    Current streak: 1 loss

    Thumbs down San Diego 4, Washington 2

    Washington's anemic lineup only manages 2 runs and 7 hits in the first game of a road trip in San Diego. Christian Guzman did manage 2 doubles ad Aaron Boone's 5th home run of the season with Guzman aboard accounts for the only Nats runs.

    San Diego pitcher Randy Wolf gives up the Boone home run but settles down to hold the Nationals for the remainder of 6 innings. Heath Bell gets his first win of the season for San Diego and Trevor Hoffman collects his 10th save.

    Randy Wolf helps his cause with a double and the Padres pull ahead with solo home runs from Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Kouzmanoff in the bottom of the 7th inning. Prior to that the Padres Michael Barrett singled with the bases loaded, driving in the Padres 2 other runs.

    Nationals record: 22-31

    Current streak: 2 losses
